Foot-and-mouth disease virus: immunogenicity and structure of fragments derived from capsid protein VP and of virus containing cleaved VP.


Peptide fragments were obtained from the immunogenic capsid protein VP3, ca. 24 kilodaltons (kd), of foot-and-mouth disease virus type A12 119ab by three procedures: (1) spontaneous proteolysis of in virion VP3 in tissue cultures to produce a 15 kd peptide, designated S fragment; (2) trypsin treatment of purified virus to produce a 16 kg peptide, designated… (More)
